Try this, in saxon or xalan you can define fn to "http://exslt.org/common":

  <xsl:key match="wit" name="wits" use="@name"/>
  <xsl:template match="foo">
    <xsl:variable name="wits">
        <xsl:apply-templates mode="wits"/>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="fn:node-set($wits)"/>
  <xsl:template match="root">
      <xsl:text>See the reading for:&#10;</xsl:text>
        <xsl:sort select="@name"/>
  <xsl:template match="wit">
    <a href="foo/a1.xml?wit={@name}">
      <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>
  <xsl:template match="body" mode="wits">
    <xsl:call-template name="wits"/>
  <xsl:template name="wits">
    <xsl:param name="str" select="@wit"/>
      <xsl:when test="contains($str,' ')">
        <wit name="{substring-before($str,' ')}"/>
        <xsl:call-template name="wits">
          <xsl:with-param name="str" select="substring-after($str,' ')"/>
        <wit name="{$str}"/>
